Here’s a question, range trip related…
How come I shoot .22 pistols so much better than full power rounds? Not just comparing the P22 to the Sig 229, but with the Springfield with the .22 conversion, and the same frame with the .45 loaded. It just seems so much easier to keep the .22 near the bull than the .40 or .45. Not perfect, mind you, of course.
Sub-conscious flinch. I know the big .45 is coming and flinch, I know the little .22 is coming and don’t. Or I’m more relaxed with the .22.
Rig some way of getting a partner to hand me a gun with one round in the magazine and I can’t tell what it is by looking at it. This would require a .22 conversion kit that completely matched my regular slide so I couldn’t tell by the sights. Probably require 2 separate guns, too.
What else could I try? Bring a .44 magnum, maybe, and shoot 50 through that before switch to practice with the .45…
I don't even know if flinching is the issue.
I've done all the drills. Especially with the revolver with empty cylinders. It still doesn't eliminate it.
The Missus has a pretty nasty stomache bug - And by "pretty nasty" I'll just elide the details, if you don't mind. But she's up to the toast and seltzer stage, so *Excelsior!*
